Re: Blastocystis vs. Probiotics?

I was diagnosed with Blastocystis hominis and entamoeba dispar. The stool test also revealed an abnormally low level of Secretory iga (sIgA). sIgA is the predominant antibody, or immune protien the body manufacturer's and releases in mucosa linings, including the gut. It is a necessary component to protect against viruses, bacterial, parasites and other germs. Stress, anxiety, negative moods, inadequate nutrition and excessive alcohol intake are some causes of a low level of sIgA. In my case, several months of negative moods and mental/physical stress were the cause. I would suspect this caused a proliferation of parasite colonies, which the body can get rid of normally, or keep in control at least.

Of course, the fix to increasing sigA levels is stop the causes mentioned above. L-glutamine has been shown to greatly assist in rebuilding the levels. Also, the probiotic S.boulardii has been shown to significantly increase SigA in mice and rats. Good luck.
